Combat Decorated War Veteran Jim Webb Considering Leaving the Democratic Party to Run as an Independent in 2016
Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb is considering leaving the Democratic Party to run as an independent in 2016, asserting that the Democratic Party is helping frontrunner Hillary Clinton win her bid for the presidency.
Former Sen. Webb’s campaign released initial information about his possible exit from the Democratic Party when sending out details about a press conference he is holding on Tuesday at the National Press Club.
The email from the Webb was campaign was titled: “Jim Webb to consider independent run.”
His departure would leave Democratic primary voters with a narrow menu of left-wingers, including three male or female progressives, plus one socialist Senator from Vermont.
Webb was disappointed that the last Democratic debate did not distribute time equally to all of the candidates on stage.
